Mario Balotelli was crying when he was substituted

Italian striker of Ghanaian descent Mario Balotelli was reduced to tears on Saturday night after the AC Milan attacker was taken off with 15 minutes to go at Napoli.

After Adel Taarabt had fired Milan ahead after just eight minutes of his debut, the Rossoneri proceeded to concede goals to Gökhan Inler and Gonzalo Higuain before Super Mario was eventually given the hook.

Upset at what a poor performance in Milan’s ailing season in Serie A, Balotelli welled up with emotion as he sat on the subs bench.

The former Manchester City forward cried behind a coat, before he eventually removed the clothing to reveal his blood-shot watery eyes.

UPDATE: It has since been reported that Balotelli was subject to racial abuse by Napoli fans, which lead to his emotional outburst.

No matter how u dye your hair brown putting in fake ices and chains… no matter you were born in italy or any European county, no matter whether u eat and sleep with them 24\7, U LL NEVER BE THEM!! They ll still see u as a lil monkey!! U see we are all in the same boat as black people and is sinking and instead coming together to show how strong we can be as a unit, some black niggas wanna be white esp this balotelli guy and now u crying ahahahhaa!! Is only a fool who say had I know!!!! This guy is ridiculous and am so glad he is passing thru this racial discrimination because he wanted to be someone he is not and he ll face the music to the end because these Italians are pathologically racist and ll continue to humiliate him till he retire!! Am so surprise this guy was looking down upon Africans and black people and I know this experience ll teach him a bitter lesson for him to be a better person!!!

    “Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee” The “adopted” parents have kept their mute over these racial attacks with the motto,”the ´dark-skinned´ has paid his dues”! It’s about time you told the Italiens that YOU ARE BLACK AND PROUD! but PLEASE SAY IT LOUD!!! SHOW THEM THAT YOU ARE THEIR BEST!!!! “SAY IT LOUD -I’M BLACK AND PROUD” NO RACIAL ATTACKS SHOULD STOP YOU FROM BEING THE BEST- SHOW THEM BROTHER!!! Hey are your “adopted parents” not from Napoli?!?!

    Self made, you are not fully developed as a human.you are the monkey

    This guy is a racist too!! He looked down upon Africans too and am surprised he cried when the whites do it to him! He has made mockery of Ghana and Africa for a long! A black man denying his own black parents is a joke and am not surprised the whites always ridicule him because what make black men different from other race is our undying love for our mother’s regardless of what they did to us!!! Black guys love their mums to death and is well documented that black Americans, Africans and carribeans are mummy’s boys and we grow to have affection for our mother’s but this fool has no respect for that age old tradition!! Tupac, was thrown out on the streets by his mother at very early age but never ever hated her mommy and he even made a song for her mums and other black mothers!! Christopher Wallace aka biggie small also made a song for his mums though he was kicked out by his mums at very tender age!! Most of the black superstars have had issues with their mums but they still love them and that’s the difference btn black men and other race men but this Italian Blackman has never heard anything like that damning his own mother at every given opportunity!! If u rejects your own mother, the world ll rejects u too!!!

    I am sure by now Balotelli has deeply regretted choosing to play for Italy. i do not blame him because he just did not get good counsel. Moses, and the entire Israel nation were born and raised in Egypt, yet they were always HEBREWS. They were never Egyptians. When Moses found out that he was born by the Hebrews, he switched allegiance and nationality that very day. You see, it doesn’t matter where one is born. You are who your parents are. Balotelli made such a sad mistake. Especially the way he did it.

    This balotelli if a guy is a big fool!!! He is simply ridiculous guy!! How can u fight racism when u ARE RACIST YOURSELF!! Balotelli is racist himself and that’s why he has rejected his black parents!! People don’t see it that way but I know that for a long time!!! He was raised by Italian Jewish and who are more racist than a jew born Italian?!!! His adopted folks programmed his mind against black people including his black parents and blacks in general and that’s why he hate his black parents and Africa and Ghana as a whole! He wanted to be white and so far he is the only known black footballer who has refused to accept his roots!! He always put emphasis on the fact that he is from Italy though the Italians has denied him several times!! U can only fight against something when u accept the fact that u are proud part of that thing but this black Italian has reject been black so how can u fight racism then!!!!

    Ahh, what does any of the have to do with balotelli and ghana/africa???

    No wonder he shuns us.. Hed crying bcos he had a bad game.. Whats with all this race BS?? Ghafuo paaaaa, monkies nkoaaa..

  10. tB says:

    All you guys downing Balo are all ignorant bigots. Do you know how much of this guys salary goes to help orphanages in Africa? Do you know how this guy has secretly paid visits to honour his real African mother?
    Do you know who is the guy advising his Junior brother to choose Ghana over Italy.
    Do you know what it means for a Black guy to don the Italian Jersey and still overcome the odds so that people like you would sit in a corner somewhere and be proud of your skin?
    Now you tell me. Who here is being outrageously ungrateful?

  11. radeiz says:

    i bet the italian headlines will say..look the monkey cries lollll..you cant blame him though he grew up VERY confused

  12. tbdarko says:

    SELFMADE, SHUT UR MOUTH! NO HUMAN BEING DESERVES TO BE RACIALLY ABUSED. HOW CAN U SAY HE DESERVES IT AND U ARE HAPPY. BALLOTELLI MAY NOT HAVE CHOSEN TO PLAY FOR GHANA BUT HE DOES A LOT FOR AFRICA SUCH AS SENDING A LOT OF MONEY TO ORPHANS. U Should be wishing him to stay strong…

  13. selfmade says:

    @ tb.. U are really ignorant buddy!!! Am not condening racism but what am saying is that u need to be yourself!! U know why this guy is going thru all these discrimination, because he refused to be who he truly was!!! How can u say u are Italian when we all know that u are Ghanaian because u have Ghanaian parents!!! This guy would have gained a lot of respect if he has proclaimed proudly that he is an african, black and proud of it but since he was born in Italy, he feels part Italian, he would have gained due recognition! He was trying to force himself as an italina and that has backfired on his face! He should have let Italians recognized that he is proud as a Blackman and that he ll serve his country as a Blackman rather than showing to the Italians that he is an italian! Listen buddy, nobody can make u inferior but yourself and balotelli has made himself inferior to those racist Italians by forcing himself to be one!! How can he be Italian but we all know that u are Blackman? How mister? He needs to accept first his identity before he fights racial discrimination!!! He needs to embrace his folks as his real black parents n be proud of them before he can fights racism!! If he is an Italian,,how come his own kind is racially abusing him? How? The answer is simple, they see him different and is high time he stopping saying am Italian,,but rather embraced his roots, know his real black identity and he ll have tremendous support!!! Now he is deluded fella, lost in the mist of the ocean!! Lastly, u said his money support African orphanage and that’s his choice and besides if u can’t support and accept your REAL MOTHER AND FATHER, HOW CAN U SUPPORT ORPHANAGE? His support for African orphanage is just a formality because is useless when u can’t support your own blood!!!

  14. selfmade says:

    @ tb.. Again does one has to wear another country jersery to be proud? Free yourself from colonial mentality and shackles because as someone said, African problems can be solved by Africans and not any other country!!!! Again, he has already put on the Italian jersey, has it changed anything? No, because he has refused his own identity and that means he is lost!!! Again his junior brother can choose to represent which country he likes that ll not change the fact that, they are still black African people period!!

  15. selfmade says:

    I don’t need anyone to tell me that I should be proud of my skin!! This is deluded thinking!! This is inferiority complex thinking!!! In 21st century, I have to put on Italian jersery to be proud of my skin?ahahhaaaaaa!!! U are born black, be proud of it and stop looking down upon yourself!!!
